Welcome to my first blog post! I am extremely excited to be in this class. I am a creative individual and am looking forward to the amazing curriculum we have ahead of us, especially the building of a website. I chose to become a IMM student due to my love for fashion, marketing, creativity, and international business. After being laid off in 2009, I knew that I needed to make a change. I was eager to learn more about the business side of things and began to do research on MBA programs. Originally I was considering Ohio State as they have an excellent MBA program. I also currently reside in Columbus, Ohio so this would be a very easy choice. However, when I looked more into the curriculum I was not that excited about what I saw. The classes seemed uninteresting and also did not offer me a combination of what I was looking for. As I began to do more research and I came across the MSIMM program at BU. Thanks to the wonderful access we now have due to the internet, I jumped at the chance to become a BU student. Not only was I impressed with the school, but also the program itself. Finally I was excited about the classes I would be taking! This is my first semester as a grad student and I am looking forward to the journey which lies before me.
Oh, and just for fun......I am a huge animal lover......so of course I had to include pictures of my puppies! Sophie is on the left and Riley is on the right!
